operation will extend eastwad, where u.s. forces are currently stationed. also ahead, trying to tame corruption in africa. the fight against corruption is at the top of the agenda a at te african union's main annual summit in ethiopia. we ask our correspondent whether the plans under discussion can actually succeed. i am sarah harman. thank's for joining us. u.s. president donald trump has told leaders gathered in switzerland that america is open for business. but the u.s. won't tolerate trade practices he sees as unfair. trump was delivering closing remarks at this week's world economic forum in doorposts. one of his key messages -- growth in the u.s. spells gross for economies around the world.
2:02 pm
>> the anticipation was palpable. politicians and highflying executives waiaiting in line for over an hour to get inside the hall where donald trump would deliver his speech. the first u.s. president to do so since bill clinton two decades ago. and eventually, with plenty of pomp, trump arrived on stage. he did not mince his words. pres. trump: as president of the united states, i will always put america first. just like the leaders of other countries should put their country first also. bubut america first does not men america alone. when the united states grows, so does the world. reporter: and what is being viewed as a disgsguised referene to china, he demanded a reformed trade system. pres. trump: we cannot have free
2:03 pm
and open trade if some countries exploit the system at the expense of others. we support free tradede, but it neededs to be fair, and it needs to be reciprocal. in the end, unfair trade undermines u us all. the united states will no longer turn a blind eye to unfair economic practices. reporter: the u.s. president stuck to his america first message,e, and used the davos ststage to pitch to investorors. pres. trump: america is open for business, and we are competitive once again. reporter: trump took advantage of a q and a session afterward to take a swipe at the media for reporting fake news. his comments were met with disdain. despite the booing, the u.s. president later tweeted his speech was a success. sarah: nicholas cassels joins me
2:04 pm
. he is a political scientist here in berlin. we have got trump the protectionist addressing davos, a meeting of globalists. what do you think he is hoping to achieve here? nicholas: he was speaking -- he was not speaking to the business elite or political leaders. he was speaking to his own base in the united states. in 2018, the republicans are facing midterm elections. what he was saying was basically, i am responsible for the economic upswing in the united states, and we are open for business. what is happening is that the world economy is pulling everybody up, including the united states. he was basically advertising himself and his policies. sarah: what do you make of the standout line from his speech, america first does not mean america alone. are we seeing a softening of his stance? nicholas: he was simply catering to the audience. obviously, he was in davos, and
2:05 pm
he recognized the gathering as a gathering of world leaders, of internationalists. so he said that. but he is an opportunist. that is not necessarily a bad thing. but it was a little disappointing, to say the least, that the american president, delivering the closing speech, did not address the question of the splintering international globalized world, and to get to the finishing touches of the doorposts meeting, outline a real strategy of how the u.s. is trying to reshape a more fair and more just world. sarah: do you think trump's speech to the doubles elite or republican voters at home is going to have impact, or is this a lot of hype nicholas:? i don't think the speech had any impact whatsoever, particularly not on international cooperation. sarah: that is nicholas cassels,
2:06 pm
political scientist at the jfk institute in berlin. nicholas: thank you for having me. sarah: ok, we have time for one more question. sometimes that happens. does not come through. i was struck watching the speech by how trump seemed on message. it looked like they had him on the teleprompter. he gave a coherent speech, a largely scripted speech. what did you make of that? can we look forward to more of that next week at the state of the union? nicholas: i read the speech is a transcript. that is different from hearing it. what i read was everything but coherent. america is open for business. we need fair trade. we need just trade. america first, but not alone. you know, it was -- it was a lot, but as i said, it lacked a strategy. it lacked this coherent denominator that said, this is my vision for the globalist -- the re-globalization of the
2:07 pm
world. he said the forgotten men and women have been forgotten for too long. i am here to fix it. i am the dealmaker. there is no deal to be made. there is no deal to be had. he is out of the tpp. he lost the pacific economically. this speech did nothing whatsoever but tout the uprising in world economic activity. sarah: that is nicholas cassels from the jfk institute in berlin. thank you for being with us. ♪ ♪ >> it is time not to give you the economic perspective about the from speech. despite the criticism, what is clear is that the business people in doubles-- in davos approval to the policy so far. the president left him helicopter after delivering his highly anticipated speech, but none of the economic views he presented were really new. so the world economic forum comes to an end.
2:08 pm
with other discussions focusing on everything from cyber wars to the future of education, it became evident that the global economic and political elite will continue to tackle the challenges ahead, with or without the u.s. president. and dw's team has been covering the meeting all week long. they have been talking not only to business leaders, but also experts from the world of science. elena humphrey had the chance to meet the head of the cern, the european nuclear researcher, to discuss global challenges. reporter: thank you for joining us. >> many thanks for the opportunity of this chat. reporter: as the head of a center for nuclear research, you know perhaps better than anyone the power of a split atom, and therefore the power of nuclear warheads. does that keep you up at night, knowing there are potentially unwieldy leaders who have nuclear codes, nuclear buttons on their desks? just: of course this is worrying for everybody. on the other hand, it is clear
2:09 pm
we cannot stop science because of the fear of how science is going to be used. atomic physicists, nuclear physics, it has led to atomic and nuclear weapons. it has also led to -- nuclear medicine, which is used to cure people. i think we cannot really stop knowledge because we are afraid of how the government or political authorities are going to use it. reporter: these are uncertain times, times of handwringing, worrying times. how important is it that we take the scientific approach to thinking that we consider facts? guest: it is important. science can play a role. it can play a role because science is unifying and universal. it can connect people, and it can help build a shared future in a fractured world, which is actually the theme of davos this year. it is also important that
2:10 pm
science becomes one essential component of the decision-making process. when authorities and society decides about the big challenges -- not the only component, but one of the central components -- decisions must be based on facts and not just on opinions, and on scientific evidence. reporter: we began by speaking of the warnings linked to nuclear armament and so on. having nuclear power can have advantages, particularly when we are talking about climate change, finding new energy needs . in the time after fukushima, can you ever see nuclear power stepping in to fill some of our energy needs again? guest: i think we have to continue to work on all our technologies in order to make them more reliable for society. we cannot just say we stop everything and use alternative energies, because we know they are not going to solve the problem. we have a challenge, and we have to try to face it in all
2:11 pm
possible ways, by using all approaches. reporter: i want to bring in the fact you are the cochair of the world economic forum this year. one of the rallyining cries has been t that the davos man needso listen to the davos woman to make things change. do you get the sense that is happening, frankly, this year? guest: i think having a panel of cochairs made of women is a very strong sign. i think it really speaks to the importance of diversity and inclusiveness. if you look at the panel, we are all women, but we are different. we have different backgrounds, different messages to bring. i am a strong believer in diversity, which means giving everyone the same opportunities. reporter: thank you very much for your time. guest: thank you. thank you. sarah: that was my colleague, helena humphrey, from the world

everything indicates this is going into an extensive international business. reporter: as far as legalized marijuana, the market is growing. legalizing marijuana went into effect this month in california. experts say sales of marijuana could reach $7 billion. use of the drug is already legal in countries like spain and the netherlands. no surprise that investors in countries as are away as iceland are hoping to benefit. analyst: -- javier: that is all from the business desk. it is back to sarah, because we have more news. sarah: in brief. short news from around the world. in south korea, at least 37 people have died in a fire in a hospital. the fire broke out in the emergency room of the hospital, which also operates a home for the elderly. it is not yet known what caused the blaze. a moscow cinema says it will no longer show a band movie, following a police raid.

rose: i am not worried. i have been watching very closely what has been said in washington and and kara. the countries seem to be closely communicating with each other. they seem to be paying a attentn to making sure the other is ininformed. so i am not worried. of course, in general, nato is always worried when lives are being lost. that goes for syria, turkey. ththat goes for afghanistan, ir, anywhere in the world. in that sense, we are worried about conflict. terry: the german forereign mininister is calling for nato o take a stronger role to facilitate more dialogue between turkey and the u.s. clearly, allies are worried. what more can nato do? rose: first of all, nato is already actively on the g ground in turkey. we are not operating in syriaia, the we are on the ground in turkey, providing for air defense, for control, for surveillance. we are doing w what we c can asa nato ally to help turkey in their fight against terrorism,

2:20 pm
to the neighboring country, benin, observing what traders and travelers go through every day. although we are still more than one hour away from the border, we have been passing several checkpoints of the police, immigration, and customs. in many cases, drivers are asked for bribes. more than 10 checkpoints on an 80 kilometer stretch of road is hardly unusual. anyone who refuses to play along and fork over cash will need hours to proceed. many people here say that nothing has changed since mohammed bihari was elected president of nigeria. >> they used to collect money from us at the checkpoints. >> corruption is a big issue. it is a huge one, at that. the police, even when you don't want to give them money, like the bus drivers -- they do it as
2:21 pm
if it is their right. >> [indiscernible] we expected something very urgent, a kind of drastic changes, but we have been disappointed so far. reporter: during his campaign, he promised to combat corruption. but a recent afro barometer study shows that more than 80% of nigerians still believe officials are corrupt on the other hand, 59% of nigerians think the government is making a serious effort to fight corruption. three years ago, that figure was just 21%. experts have praised the government's initial measures, and people began to fear getting caught demanding bribes. there has beenn no sign of chane at the instititutional level, ad little evidence of a shift in behavior. in other words, business as usual. >> we had an example of president bukhari, -- buhari,

whwho is said to be somebody who is detached and does not seek a lot of personal wealth. that a person who is really disciplined and understands his mission, the mission of everyone around him, is clean. nigerians do not feel, rightly or wrongly, that those around him are clean. reporter: despite indictments and arrests of several high-ranking politicians, no final convictions have been delivered. the government says it has to abide by the rule of law. >> it is -- i mean, the judicial process is circumventnted with a lot of technicalities that tend to slow -- bubut not slowing the war. the war is still aggressive. this snail's pace judicial process -- we will continue. reporter: the snail's pace is what people traveling the road to benin know all too well.

members are not here today. three are in ugaganda, and othes have left for europe. >> we don't have any money to pay them, so they don't get a salary. i think they might have gone to uganda to look for better clubs and earn some money. reporter: refugees are not allowed to work in ethiopia, so they need to survive on money sent to them from relatives or friends in america and europe. but it is not always easy. cycling can make you very hungry, so things like food need to be included in the budget. >> four of us live in thihis ro, and we pay rent ofof 3000 barrel -- birra per month. that is about 1 150 u.s. dollar. we share everything, and all of
2:26 pm
us contribute to the bills. reporter: after the rent is paid, each cyclist is left with around $100 a month. this has to cover all other expenses, including bicycle repairs and spare parts. if you crash and damage or bicycle, you cannot train for weeks. >> our main problem are the tires. we have to change them frequently. butt if f other bicycle parts break, that is moree problemati, and even more expensive to buy. reporter: if all goes according to plan, the team trains every day. hard work is already paying off. cycling has a long tradition in eritrea, a remnant of the colonial era. >> we started from scratch, with very limited r resources. but we comompete with differeret teams frfrom addis ababa.
